It was our first visit to Hong Kong and afternoon tea at the Peninsula was highly recommended by many guides. However, in spite of being told by the hotel that we should arrive at 1.30pm to avoid long queues we still waited nearly 2 hours....More

We had lunch in a world that has not changed for 50 years. The food was good, the service was average, the ambiance was from another world. The orchestra playing in the gallery and the setting was magical.

We were told by many people that going to tea at The Peninsula was a “must do”. They were right. The atmosphere was delightful and the service was great! A very nice way to spend an afternoon with good friends.

Excellent atmosphere and nice decorations. Food is amazing and service is great. Worthwhile to pay a visit. The only negative is that it is relatively noisy as it is the lobby of the hotel . There are people walking around.

Tsim Sha Tsui
Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the major tourist and shopping
areas of Hong Kong. With a high concentration of
hotels, retail shops and commercial offices – it’s a
busy and bustling neighbourhood that never sleeps. On
the surface, Tsim Sha Tsui seems to only feature an
abundant number of high-end retail stores selling
designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity
with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also
